A bit of surprising but potentially very exciting news: Zombieland, the TV series, is no longer going to air on a regular broadcast network. Instead, Amazon.com has snapped it up and is developing the series in hopes of showing it on their instant video service.

The 30-minute episodes would appear on Amazon as original programming. And as we've recently discovered through a few casting pages, the show will center around the original group of post apocalyptic survivors. We're actually fairly optimistic about Amazon producing this series — perhaps this way the creators will attempt to do fewer episodes per season, instead of laboring under a ridiculous 22-episode purchase from a major network. Plus, before Zombieland was a movie it was a TV series pitch, so hopefully there's tons of material to build on, from the movie's original writers, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. [Broadcast Now]

How popular is Amazon Prime? Is there a big enough existing audience of subscribers vs, let's say, Netflix? I have access to Netflix and Hulu Plus and haven't ever felt the need to get Amazon Prime b/c I figure the other two can cover whatever Amazon Prime has. Is this an accurate mentality or no? (I use Amazon as my primary means of ordering books and DVDs, but that's once every other month or so.)
